Best PSU for this build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 



yes I am looking at a 1000W PSU I know its overkill but in the future I may be heading towards a TriSLI.

www.pccasegear.com.au is the shop I am using and would rather keep it all within there

convo started HERE but I thought I would get more PSU opinions here help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Will be ocing CPU to 4.6Ghz+ and the cards will be OC'd as well

Go with the Strider Plus, regulation and ripple suppression are similar, value wise the Strider Plus is a better deal than the Strider Gold.
Or if budget is no issue, go with the HCP 1200, the best high output unit you can buy and easily the best solution for 3x GTX 580s.

I know most will disagree, but when it comes to PSU there's no such thing as overkill. Having more should cover whatever you might want to add later on, such as watercooling or 4-way SLI or Quad-Fire and will never stress the PSU to its limit.

For a little more I would pick this up http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=17347 or this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=18222

It's not going to consume more power when utilization is at 40-60% of its capacity and it stays cool, good for the PSU.

I would definitely go with Corsair for this since this build looks awesome. I would do the 950w or the 1200w (like what I have). There is no such thing as overkill with a PSU.
